Whistler's biographer Joseph Pennell identified the figures in this drawing as Beatrix's sister Ethel Birnie Philip and the journalist Charles Whibley taking a meal in the garden at 110 rue du Bac. Ethel Birnie Philip often posed for Whistler, and she served as his personal secretary in 1893 and 1894. She married Charles Whibley in Paris in July 1894.
